There is damascus on the backside (ura) of the blade which is very unique for a kata-ha (single-edged) knife. The handle is made from 100 year old Sonoran Desert Ironwood with real mammoth "bone" ferrule and end cap. There is a nickel bolster where the blade meets the handle and the saya is made from solid Ironwood. The knife was only used about three times in total. This is a collectors piece that you will never see again!Blade thickness: 5mm (near the bolster), 3mm (middle), 1.5mm (tip). Blade material: Hitachi white and blue steels, hand forged. Handle material: Desert Ironwood, mammoth "bone". If you have any questions please let me know.
